Karlyn and Warren were married in September in Spruce Grove at Greystone Gardens Bed and Breakfast. Their reception followed at the Mirage Banquet Hall in Edmonton.
After photographing the ceremony at Greystone Gardens, we drove to Warren's grandparents house to take some photos.
This location was special to Warren, because he was very close with his grandparents. Karlyn and Warren's wedding theme was vintage. It was only natural to include Warren's grandfather's vintage truck in the photograph.
This turquoise truck was restored to perfection. It had a large chrome grill with a chopped top and custom rims.
We wanted to create something romantic so we asked them to get in close and have Karlyn pull on Warren's suit a little. With their emotions as well as the sun flare I feel like we accomplished our goal. The image really makes me feel like these two are completely in love.
The image was taken with a Canon 5D Mark III and a 24-70, 2.8L series lens. My wife Jackie is also using the reflector to bounce some light back at the couple.
The only difficulty shooting this image was making sure there wasn't too much lens flare as I wanted the emotion to catch your eye first. We had originally posed them in front of the truck but once we moved them to the side the image really started coming together.
I really feel that the colour of the truck helps to make this image even stronger. The way the light hits it, really makes the colour pop
